Finally, Syabas Pakatan Harapan!

This is the news Bolehlanders have been waiting for! At one time PKR's intransigence seemed to have scuttled the last remaining hope for ever toppling the dumno led government in the coming general election.

It is true that Mahathir has a baggage as big as the elephant. Everyone knows that. But in a do or die situation, Bolehlanders who hope for change cannot cling to emotions.

The price is too high to continue to allow the dumno led government to lead the country further down the slippery road to a failed state.

Anwar is still in jail. Bolehlanders have to be realistic that other then Mahahtir there is no one else in the opposition who would be able to attract the Malay votes in numbers sufficient to make any significant difference to their chance of winning GE14.

Whether you like Maha or not, he still commands respect from the Malay electorate for what he had done.

To help heal feelings, it is good of Mahathir to have finally acknowledged the pain he had caused Anwar and his family and to acknowledge the sacrifices Anwar has made.

But the opposition's battle to gain Putrajaya is a difficult and ardours one, especially with the huge advantage of incumbency not on their side.

And with a foe known to use or abuse their incumbency without qualms.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
